Knight Piésold has been operating in Argentina since 2005. The drive of our people has led the company to a path of sustained growth based on high quality and technical expertise.
We have more than 200 employees, including engineers, graduates, technicians, and other specialized professionals, providing consulting services to the mining, energy, and oil and gas industries. We opened our first office in 2005 in the capital city of San Juan, followed by our second office in 2007 in the province of Mendoza, in the department of Godoy Cruz. The Mendoza office is Knight Piésold Argentina’s central office. In 2022, our third office was opened in Perito Moreno, Santa Cruz to support operations in southern Argentina. In 2023, our fourth office was opened in the capital city of Salta to provide operational support to historic and new projects in northern Argentina.
We have an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to providing engineering services, including civil engineering, electromechanical engineering, hydraulic engineering, hydrology and hydrogeology, project inspection and supervision, and CQA and MQA.
We offer environmental services for all types of projects, in all phases, and in the most diverse scenarios, including environmental studies; environmental and social impact studies; conceptual and detailed closure plans; environmental characterization studies; and social, archaeological, paleontological, and monitoring studies. We also provide environmental management and technical representation.
In addition, we provide project management services, from developing bidding studies, engineering optimization studies, and technical-economic solutions, to performing works management, technical audits, risk analyses, and cost and production optimizations.
Knight Piésold Argentina has been involved in the biggest mining projects in the region, and we continue to rely on our technical ability to respond to high industry standards. We also focus on serving the oil and gas industry, supporting main operators in the industry. We also support other Knight Piésold offices on projects in Central America, Africa, and Asia.
In order to continuously provide services that meet our clients' needs and allow us to comply with applicable legal requirements, we have efficiently applied an Integrated Management System (IMS) into our office practices. Our IMS is certified to international standards: Quality Management ISO 9001, Environmental Management ISO 14001, and Occupational Health and Safety Management ISO 45001.
We are continuously growing in the mining industry and have made our way into the oil and gas industry, which has been strongly growing in the country. Providing high quality services for different industries that the company takes part in is an ongoing challenge that we look forward to undertaking.
